I wasn't able to go to the range August 1st, but I did go the next day, yesterday. As for getting my rifle zeroed in, no such luck. I tried different bullet weights and brands. I should have stuck with one bullet weight. I hit the bull once at 100 yards with the American Eagle 150 grn. It seemed to be the best for my rifle so far. I plan to try again, but next time I will use all the same bullet weight when shooting.

When I was at the range a guy next to me had a ruger American in .308. He let me shoulder it and it definitely felt alot like the savage axis. Definitely a lightweight rifle
